Weird problems with uvula

ter waking up this morning I had a sore throat but I didn't really think much of it, but after getting up I felt my uvula felt awkward, like I felt the uvula on my tounge, and it would move all around to the point where its going down my throat and I feel like I can swallow it. When I breathe out it bascially flops onto the back of my tounge, but then when I swallow it starts hanging down my throat again, and its just a horrible feeling knowing that. Plus im kind of scared to sleep thinking I could choke on it or somnething.

17 years old, never had tonsils taken out, what could be the problem?

I tried eating a few ice pops, and gargling hot salt water but none really made it feel better, what is this? What should I do about it?

Re: Weird problems with uvula

It's probably just swollen. Mine will get that way alot of times with sinus drainage because it drips right down that area. If you still have problems in a few days I'd go make sure you don't have strep or something. And of course, if it swells to the point where it interferes with your breathing, go to the doc!

Re: Weird problems with uvula

Definitely sounds swollen - you could even try some Advil and see if that helps at all.
The ice pops were a good idea, the cold should bring it down some.
